Want To Win Your Friend To Christ?

Here’s a simple but effective approach:

 

Christ called us to be “Fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). In order to fish, we need a “N-E-T.”

 

N = Nerve ending: Identify the area of pain in their life – the “nerve ending”.

 

E = Empathize, as well as you can, with their pain.

 

T = Teach them how Christ can heal their pain.

 

And what are the “nerve endings” in people’s lives these days? Well, according to The Barna Research Group:

 

Financial – 39%

 

Work-related – 16%

 

Personal health – 12%

 

Time and stress – 8%

 

Parenting – 7%

 

Educational attainment – 6%

 

Fear of crime – 3%

 

Personal relationships – 3%

 

Key Scriptures on:

 

Finances: Deuteronomy 8; Matthew 6:19-33; Philippians 4:12, 13, 19; 1 Timothy 6:6-10, 17-19; Hebrews 13:5

 

Work: Proverbs 10:4; 12:11, 24, 27; 13:4, 11, 23; Ecclesiastes 5:18-20; Ephesians 4:28; 1 Thessalonians 4:11, 12; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15

 

Happy fishing!
